How to Photograph Machu Picchu Tours:
In April 2011, my family and I took a trip to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the incas in Peru. Before we left, I searched for information on taking pictures of Machu Picchu tours. While I found many photographs of the ancient Incan ruins, I found few tips on how to photograph the site of Machu picchu. What follows are things Ilearned which will help you shoot the best possible photos there.
I’m an amateur but dedicated photo enthusiast. The following tips are for serious photographers but also for beginners wanting to capture better images of tours Machu Picchu. For the advanced photographer, you’ll find specific details about Machu Picchu itself – timing, light, restrictions, filters, etc. For others, you’ll find additional tips for taking great travel photos… anywhere. Anyone can get a great picture of Machu Picchu.
Tips for taking better photos of tours Machu Picchu: site-specific pointers:
Know the rules of trips. I had a vague idea of restrictions before arriving. And once there, however, what I had read and what I experienced there weren’t the same. Here’s what I learned:
- Day Packs/Camera Bags: Officially, you can’t carry in a pack bigger than a day pack (20L maximum) into the ruins. Backpacks must be stored at the entrance. I saw some good size day packs there and no one seemed to care.
- Tripods: You can’t use a large tripod. I have no idea what constitutes “large” but the general rule seems to be that if you appear to be a professional, they will charge you a steep fee.
- Thus, while I think a tripod is normally very helpful for the reasons noted later on, I didn’t use one while at Machu Picchu just to be safe.
- o Recommendation: Get a small gorilla or table-top tripod you can easily slip in and out of your pack. Set it up on the ground, a wall, a bench or any available surface and, if your camera has it, use the live-view mode to see your subject.
- Lenses: You’re not supposed to bring in a lens over 200 mm. I shot mostly with my travel lens, an 18mm-200mm zoom (27mm-300mm in 35mm equivalent on my DX DSLR) but I spent much more time at the wide-angle end trying to capture the vistas or close-quarter areas like the Temple of the Condor. So personally, I wouldn’t risk the longer lens because you likely won’t need it anyway.
Prepare for the light. A common reason you might want to use a tripod is to shoot in low light conditions or to steady increased depth of field shots. Regarding low light, I found four Web sites with four different times listed for the open hours at Machu Picchu. So it is best to ask for sure when you buy your entry tickets (which you cannot do on site). The site is open from either 6:00 a.m. or 6:30 a.m. and stays open until 5:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. with the last entry allowed at 4:00 p.m. depending on which website you believe!
Use the Magic Hours tours machu picchu. Sunrise will be a challenge without a tripod but at other times you should get by with a handheld camera, especially if you have vibration reduction. (One trick I use is to set the shutter release to continuous then on low light shots, I hold it down to get a burst of two to three shots. Most times, the first will be blurry due to pushing down on the shutter release but the second or third aren’t. Try it.) If you stay until late afternoon, you may not get the full “Magic Hours” (dawn and dusk) for workable light (they will likely escort you out before twilight), but you’ll at least have time on site without the midday glare.
Rethink your midday shots: I heard that Machu Picchu tours has two types of weather: rainy/misty/cool and blazing hot/bright. We were blessed to have an initially misty but then bright morning until around 11:00 when it got drizzly. Some mornings the whole place will be fogged in. Other times the light will be so harsh that every shot looks as if it was taken at high noon. So try to do most of your shooting early or late and use the middle of the day for scouting shots, resting, taking a tour or hiking. Most of all, stay flexible and bring an umbrella or waterproof kit so that even if it is rainy, you can still take some shots. In fact, at Ollantaytambo (another set of ruins second only to Machu Picchu), my best photos were when it was raining because everyone else cleared out. Also, keep in mind we were there in early April – late summer in Peru and the tail end of the rainy season. Going then meant everything was much greener than during their winter, but also rather moist for part of each day.
Plan your timing to tours Machu Picchu. All of this advice is based on coming from Aguas Calientes (Machupicchu pueblo) and not hiking in from the Inca Trail. If you do the latter, you’ll arrive at the Sun Gate for sunrise then have an hour hike after that to get to tours Machu Picchu proper where you’ll either need to check your pack in order to explore the ruins or, depending on your tour, you may get a general overview and come back later.
In our case, we had planned on getting in line for the busses from Aguas Calientes to tours Machu Picchu at 5:00 a.m. to be there when it opened at 6:00 a.m. for both the light and also to register to climb Waynapicchu (also spelled Huaynapicchu, the peak you see in the background of all those postcard shots of tours Machu Pichhu). They cut off access to Waynapicchu after 500 people register in two waves, 250 for the 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. slot and another 250 for the 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. slot. There’s also an additional fee. However, the owner of our hotel in Aguas Calientes was very helpful and gave us this advice:
- First, don’t go on the first busses. Everyone nowadays does and you end up being more tired (from getting up early) and standing in long lines to get the bus and then more long lines to enter tours Machu Picchu (and make sure you have your entry tickets before you get on the bus). Moreover, many mornings (and ours was one of those), tours Machu Picchu is fogged in until later in the morning anyway, so getting there early doesn’t help for photography purposes.
- Second, don’t worry about missing Waynapicchu. Instead, climb Machu Picchu Mountain. It takes a bit longer since it is higher, but you don’t have the crowds, you don’t have to register and pay and you’ll get a more unique view of the ruins looking down at the front of them rather than from the rear as with Waynapicchu.
We followed our host’s advice for the first part and arrived at tours Machu Picchu about 7:00 a.m. with no lines for the bus (get your bus tickets the evening before to expedite things). Once at Machu Picchu, we got our main overview photos while Waynapicchu was still enveloped in the clouds, then made our way to the entrance of Waynapicchu around 9:15 a.m. Just out of curiosity, I asked when they filled up that morning…and they hadn’t yet! So we were able to get some extra sleep, get some good light and still climb Waynapicchu.
It took us about two hours round trip with a stop at the top for photos and to explore. Personally, while I liked the big picture perspective that climbing the mountain provided, I didn’t find it as valuable for photography. That’s just me. If I had a limited amount of time and wanted great shots of tours Machu Picchu, I would spend more time at the site itself and not climb either of the mountains. You can get good elevated shots at the ruins themselves. But if you have the time, it’s worth it more for the adventure than the images. Just remember that without a long telephoto, your best shots of tours Machu Picchu itself will be as you are on the way up Waynapicchu. The summit is great for context but not details of the ruins.
